Beautiful, clean campground but very cramped

Like the title says, this campground on the edge of Spearfish is very well maintained and quite beautiful. Unfortunately the RV/Camper section is extremely cramped…the distance between sites is mere feet. The creek is very peaceful but oh is it cold!

Loud and crowded

Loud and crowded campsite.  We were butted up on both sides to two RVs with maybe 10 feet on either side.  The campground itself is well maintained, but it's right off I90 with no barrier/trees, and happens to be less than a mile from Sioux Falls regional airport, which also happens to be an Air National Guard base.  Loud.  We used it as a quick stopover which was fine, but I can't imagine spending any time here.

Decent campground, not well maintained or cleaned

Overall a decent place to stay.  We didn't experience the noise some reviewers did, but there's not much in between sites on the western loop.  Trees surround the loop, and it appears the eastern look has more secluded sites.  My biggest complaint was the sites don't appear to be well maintained, and previous campers didn't do a good job of cleaning up after themselves.  Lots of plastic bottle tops, small pieces of paper towel, etc were all over the place.  Too bad since it's an otherwise nice place.

Clean, well maintained sites

Clean and well maintained sites.  We arrived after the office closed, but there was a packet waiting for us at the night check-in site.  Interestingly, there were still staff patrolling the camp on a golf for a while.  Overall a nice place to rest for the night.

Well maintained, but a bit loud

Nice campground.  Like a lot of private RV parks, the sites tend to be very close to each other.  Beautiful backdrop of the mountains with mist and low clouds.  Gravel parking pads.

Quiet, heavily wooded

Quiet, heavily wooded campground.  We arrived well after dark and had a bit of a time finding our site, but once we were set up it was very quiet.  Parking spot was paved.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND CHECKING ON THEIR WEBSITE TO SEE IF PART OF THE ROADS ARE CLOSED DUE TO CONSTRUCTION.  THEY HAVE ALTERNATE DIRECTIONS.  We missed that detail and ended up on a 30 minute long trek around 930pm…started on the interstate, then a state road, then a county road, then an unnamed road…if we had met oncoming traffic there would have been only room for one vehicle in a few places.

Quiet Campground

Overall nice, quiet campground.  We reserved a site via the website, and were given our pick of sites once we arrived.  Sites were gravel, with a picnic table, fire ring, and electrical hookup.  Our site was well shaded with trees.
